Graduating Students Who Contribute Nothing To The Economy Is The Worst Pandemic – Dr Lawrence Muganga

The Chancellor of Victoria University Uganda, Dr Lawrence Muganga has continued his criticism of the current education system in the country.

He has now revealed that graduates who contribute nothing to the country’s economy is the biggest pandemic. In fact, he said that this is worse than the COVID-19 pandemic.

Muganga has been so vocal and critical of the current education system. He believes that it creates more unproductive people. And it should be funneled to a more practical approach.

Additionally, the academic said that PLE and UCE exams should be scrapped. These should be replaced with continuous assessments. Therefore, these are likely to create value for both the learners and parents.

“There is no pandemic bigger than having a population that is not contributing to the growth of the country so education is very important.”

“We need to change our education system. Simply replace PLE and UCE with continuous assessments. This will create value for both parents and students. Students will get skills.”

Furthermore, he also talked about skyrocketing school fees. Many schools across the country charge exorbitant fees that have become almost unpayable by parents and guardians.

Despite different attempts by the government both verbally and practically, schools have continued to hike school fees.

According to Professor Lawrence Muganga, the only thing the government can do is create a fee cap. However, this might also not help. This is due to the fact that private schools are many and big. Therefore, they can just decide to close their services creating a shortage.
